Thread: A Question for Clubsprint

  1. #1

    Default A Question for Clubsprint

    Since you didn't answer this question previously, i thought i'd start a thread so you can't miss it.

    One of the few sources of national data is Monash University statistician Linda Watson, who has been collating figures from the states and territories for a PhD thesis on the effectiveness of regulation in preventing dog attacks.

    Watson has counted at least 33 dog attack deaths in Australia since 1979, but apart from the dog that killed Ayen Chol, only one other culprit been described as a pit bull cross.

    You continually support BSL based on the fact that "pitbulls" are killers and pose a big risk to the community. Can you please explain why we are only banning "pitbulls" when out of 33 dog attack deaths, only 2 in the last 32 years have been attributed to "pitbulls"?

    Also, if you're still supporting BSL after that stat, what other breeds are we going to ban? Or do you think its better to make the owners responsible no matter what the breed?

    Is this a shit stir?

    One member feels strongly for the banning of APBT's and posts about it, then is baited.

    If this continues I will close the BSL section for a month.

    Hi puggerup, this thread was not intended to be a "shit stir" at all. Just trying to get an answer out of a member who conveniently replies to some posts but not others. It would be nice if he/she answered questions like this when put to him/her - i understand its easy enough to miss posts so in this case i decided to make a whole new thread. Hope that clears up my intentions, monitor the thread and do as you wish

    The questions are loaded. They're like that old nugget, answer yes or no, have you stopped beating your wife?
    Pibulls are killers, two deaths is two deaths that didn't need to happen.
    Is 2 deaths OK by you? Is it OK that two people die (probably children) so that you can have a Pitbull?

    Incidently, taken from the article you refer to here, some of the killers have been a Siberian husky, four bull mastiffs, a rottweiler, and crossbreeds of boxer, greyhound, pit bull and mastiffs so I'd be concerned if I owned a mastif.
    2 out of 32 equals approx 6%. Does the number of Pitbulls representesd as a percentage of the total dog population in Australia come anywhere near that?

    Also from the article you referred to
    In Canberra, however, RSPCA scientific officer Jade Norris says there is "some evidence that certain dog breeds have a greater genetic predisposition towards aggressive behaviour.

    "They might also have a lower trigger point for aggression and due to their physical size and strength they may have a greater capacity to inflict serious injury compared to other breeds."
    Interesting. Let's see what's going on in Calgary (Doesn't that city get held up as the mecca for Pitbull owners?) "After years with Labrador retrievers at the top of Calgary's most-likely to bite list, pitbull and pitbull-type terriers have suddenly taken a dubious lead, passing both shepherds and retrievers."
    In Calgary? No!
    Article Biting criticism of dog owners | Columnists | Opinion | Calgary Sun Lets see what else we can find in Calgary about Pitbulls.
    What does an actual Calgary resident think?Calgary Pit Bull Attacks
    Lastly this link Pitbull Attacks, Maulings, and Killings
    Linda Watsons research only talks about deaths, it doesn't talk about maulings and bites. The evidence about these dogs is overwhelming.
